Golf At The Wharf
In February AIG Baker purchased Gulf Shores Golf Club with the intention of offering it as a resort amenity at The Wharf. It is now known as The Golf Club of The Wharf. In April the first tournament, the Ken Stabler Alabama Celebrity Classic, was held. The course recently underwent $5 million in renovations.
The Golf Club of The Wharf Adds ProLink GPS to Help Golfers Navigate Changes.
Formerly called Gulf Shores Golf Club, The Golf Club of The Wharf underwent an extensive renovation in 2005-06 at the hands of father-son design team Jay and Carter Morrish. The overhaul lengthened the par-71 course by 300 yards and added numerous water features, bunkers and enhanced fairways. Now boasting five sets of tees ranging from 4,866 to 6,919 yards, the club is associated with The Wharf resort development in nearby Orange Beach, Ala.
ProLink Solutions, the world's leading provider of Global Positioning Satellite ("GPS") golf course management systems and digital out-of-home on-course advertising, today announced The Golf Club of The Wharf (Gulf Shores, Ala.) now features the ProLink Solutions GPS system used at many of the world's most famous golf courses.
"Thanks to ProLink GPS, our longtime golfers are able to quickly familiarize themselves with the changes to the course," said Rea Schuessler, Head Golf Professional at The Golf Club of the Wharf. "It's also a great tool for speeding pace of play, managing carts and food and beverage functions, while the advertising revenue-share component makes ProLink a truly sound investment."
The Golf Club of The Wharf joins popular state neighbors including Soldiers Creek at Woerner Preserve Resort (Elberta), Peninsula Golf Club (Gulf Shores) and Ol' Colony Golf Complex (Tuscaloosa) in providing its guests the benefits of the ProLink system.
"The recent redesign has transformed The Golf Club of The Wharf into one of the region's top courses, and we're proud to count it among our trusted partners," said Lawrence D. Bain, CEO of ProLink Solutions. "Courses from coast to coast recognize the tremendous return on investment our system delivers, as evidenced by ProLink's expansive network and high-end advertising partners."
